Devi Mahatmyam

Sri Devi Mahatmyam
Madhyama Charitham
(Middle part)
Chapter 3: Killing of Mahishasura.

11.  Sopi shakthim mumochadha devyasthamambika drutham,
       Hungararibi hatham bhoomou pathayamasa nishprabham.
 Afterwards he too threw a spear at the Goddess. The Goddess after swiftly destroying it, made it loose the glitter and made it fall on to the earth.

12.  Bhagnam shakthim nipathitham drusthwa krodha samanvitha,
       Chikshepa chamara soolam ambanai sthadabhi saachinnath.
 Chamara seeing that his spear was destroyed, threw the trident and the Goddess cut it off with her arrows.

13.  Thatha simha samuthpathya gaja kumbhandhara sthidha,
       Bahu yuddhena yuyudhe thenochai thridasaarina.
 Afterwards that lion jumped up to a great height and standing on the forehead of the elephant fought with the Asura using its hands.

14.  Yudhyamanou thathasthou thu tasmanaganmaheem gathou,
       Yuyudhathe athi samrabdhou praharairathi darunai.
 Afterwards they (Lion and Chamara) who were fighting jumped to the earth from the elephant and with great anger continued the horrific fighting with slaps. (Note that in most of the places where wresting is done, the Goddess does not take part. )

15.  Thado vegath gamuthpathya nipathya cha mriagarina,,
       Karapraharena siraschamarasya pradhakrutham.
 Then they both jumped on to the sky and again fell down. Then by a hit of the hand, the lion separated the head of Chamara from his trunk.
